Mindelle Jacobs should probably smoke a joint and then reread her
column "Law's gone to pot". Particularly the end where she asserted
that "until weed is legalized, surely we ought to make an effort to
enforce the law in a meaningful way." She is dead wrong. Enforcing bad
laws (ie: victimless crimes) makes you complicit in the unintended
consequences of said laws. As an intelligent human being living in the
21st century, a time when reason and rationality should prevail , I
make my own decisions on which laws make sense and can be ethically
followed, and which ones I have to reject and perhaps disobey on principle.
